    I purchased this basin from b&q 18 months ago (less the unfortunate accident)

    I assumed that most basins will have the fixing holes in the same position but after searching at b&q (no longer had the same basin), screwfix and wickes, none of them had the fixing holes at 21 cm apart (measured from centre of holes). Is this an unusual basin specification?

    I am trying to avoid having to drill new holes in the tiles.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, there is no standard position for fixing holes. You'd be very lucky to find one exactly the same. Tiles are easy to drill though but it seems to be sitting on a pedestal so you even silicone it to the wall.

    Google Tile drill, most tiles are easy enough to drill through, just take your time and don`t use a hammer drill.

    It appears to be Ideal Standard, so might still be available to purchase. Do you know the range? Have you tried screwfix (Kingfisher group, same as B&Q)?
